7 Reasons to Install an Energy-Efficient HVAC System in Your Home

The variety in HVAC is not made equal. One way to improve your current living environment is to update your HVAC system.

Not sure what updating your HVAC systems entails? The likelihood of your current HVAC system being energy-efficient is quite unlikely. So that's a good place to start.

Let's take a look at some of the reasons why you SHOULD install an energy-efficiency HVAC system in your home.

Your Current System Is Outdated

The older your HVAC system gets, the more maintenance it requires. Making it less efficient and more prone to downtime.

For a commercial facility, such as a hospital and pharmaceutical institution - this is a huge problem, as the nature of their work depends on the reliability of an energy system. For residential properties, this is as important - as your health and well-being can be directly affected by the air that you breathe.

Not to mention, aging wiring on an outdated system is a fire hazard to your home, and place your family in dangerous situations.

In order to combat these issues, you must be advanced with your energy system, and meet the needs of today's energy contributions. There are many different systems, which are made to replace or update your current HVAC system.

For example, a single-stage cooling and heating solution is popular for those who are located in extreme-heat and extreme-cold climates. As the system provides equal comfort all year long. However, having a system like this - means it's running all the time.

So a multi-stage system can be used to replace the one prior, helping save money on all future energy bills. These systems are automated and can have pre-set energy-saving parameters, and environment optimization settings.

Alright, let's move on to the 7 reasons for installing an energy-efficient HVAC system.

1. Cleanse That Air

The primary function of HVAC is to regulate your air quality. Ventilation, humidity, and air filtration. Because the homes of today are built air-tight, it can become up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.

Nowadays, modern HVAC systems come with air filters and dehumidifiers. Making capturing micron particles, and destroying harmful mold and germs, as simple as waiting.

Having an old HVAC system places your family under the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. When the heater starts to crack - this issue is prevalent. Because monoxide is odorless, you will never know unless you have a detector within your home.

2. Environmentally-Friendly

Having an energy-efficient HVAC system, means you are contributing to a decreased carbon footprint in this world. These systems use significantly less fuel than an older system, which helps preserve the natural resources of our world.

If it's good for the environment, it's probably good for you.

3. Save Money

Improve HVAC functionality = lowered energy bills. With the installation of an energy-efficient HVAC system, you decrease your energy costs by a large margin.

The machine does not have to run full-time and still performs better than an older system. Making this purchase now will pay-off all of the wasted money of the past with your outdated HVAC system.

4. Serene and Quiet

Unlike older models of HVAC, the energy-efficient ones are silent. They are made with a variety of noise-absorbing materials, which help dampen the sounds - during those deep and relaxing nights.

Gone are the days of rattling furnaces, and poor night sleep.

5. Temperature Control

Energy-efficient HVAC systems come with a variety of modern technology, which allows you to control the temperature to your liking. Not in one room, but every.

You can control the airflow and heat in certain rooms, and all of this is done without the added cost of your machine wasting electricity.

Want one room to be cooler than the other? It's possible. Want to warm up your home before you arrive from work? You can do it. Want to direct airflow to a certain part of the home? It's capable of it.

6. Access From Anywhere

Many of the newer HVAC systems, allow you to use your smartphone, as a control remote. By doing so, you are provided with full, unrestricted access from anywhere with a connection.

You can head out to vacation, and check on your home to see that everything is going right. Adjust the air, temperature, and humidity to fit your needs for the day when you come back.

7. Increased Home Value

Selling the home is a common nuisance of the human experience. If you have a newer HVAC system installed, this means that you can expect a significant bump in value.

A home buyer is always looking for various advancement and additions to the home,  which can improve their livelihood when they move in. Air quality, temperature control, safety, and serenity are all potential benefits that a home buyer can experience from an HVAC system.

New Age, New Approach

Now that we've covered the 7 reasons to install an energy-efficient HVAC system in your home - you are well on your way to deciding for yourself if its the right choice for you.

Nonetheless, it's 2020 - and if you're home still has a 15-year-old HVAC installed, you're missing out on the beauty of modern technology and safety. Not only do you place your family at risk of fungus-infused air and fires, but you are also losing so much money on a machine that barely functions, and will break anytime soon.
